Third Man Records is pleased to announce the official opening of their Nashville photo studio and lab. The newly opened Third Man Photo Studio, which soft-launched this Summer to Nashville-based customers, is now accepting film via mail from photographers worldwide. Details at Darkroom staff specializes in high-quality photographic film development and analog print processing using the lab hidden in the walls of the famed Blue Room music venue.

Third Man's photo chemists hand process C-41 (Color Negative), Black & White, and E-6 (Color Positive/Slide) films, and they use traditional photographic enlargement techniques to create one-of-a-kind archival quality prints from film negatives. This is a hands-on, all analog process, which yields the highest quality photographic prints possible: completely free of pixels and ink.

Third Man has worked hard to combine modern and traditional practices for the digital photography enthusiast. Their photo chemists are able to convert any digital image into a physical negative. These 'Digital Negatives' are compatible with any Black & White or Color enlarger, and can be used to make infinite fine art replicas of digital images.

The Third Man Blue Room facility is currently available for limited bookings as a photo studio. Aside from serving as the only venue in the world with the capacity to record audio direct-to-acetate, the Blue Room doubles as a fully-equipped photo studio complete with a cyclorama wall, ideal for photo and video shoots.
